BCF/ANACONDA Branded Fishing Apparel-why?

Postby Mattblack » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:35 am

I've seen quite a few people wearing Anaconda and BCF branded clothing and was wondering what the though process is when they buy it....is it superior in quality, significantly cheaper than similar alternatives or do they offer incentives for people to wear it?
The Anaconda one in particular amazes me...it has 14 company brands on the arms & these companies will certainly be paying to have this privilege .....& its still costs $70?

Never wear branded stuff. I think if someone wants me to walk around advertising their product they should pay me to do so. $70 for a thin top. Tell em they're dreaming. I shop at the op shops get something like that without the brands for $5 keep my $65 for fuel and bait.

To be honest...I can't see why anyone would purchase any branded apparel. I can not see the sense in spending your own dollars, and usually a lot of your own dollars, to advertise for the company where your hard earned dollars have gone. Some people may be sponsered and get the shirt for free and that is fair enough. The only exception I have done is to buy a Pirtek Fishing Challenge shirt....this I don't mind as I know some of the money goes to a good cause.

It is the same when purchasing brag mats....you pay and yet there are advertisments all over it!

No company would want me wearing their advertisments anyway!

Often the Ana top is free if you spend $50 on fishing, that would be why you see a few people wearing them. cheers

Cant speak on behalf of everyone but id imagine most that are wearing wouldn't really put that much thought into it.. Any advertising would be on a mynute scale.. It's probably just because its light, uv resistant, breathable, sometimes on special and most ''un-researched'' wouldnt find similar clothing at there local shopping centres..

As a side note, not a tradie but i personally much prefer plain tradie wear (socks/boots, pants, jumpers and jackets..)

I buy my UV gear and other gear from the Cancer Council online shop, very good quality, no advertising on them and goes to a good cause. can't stand those advertising clothes, hard to buy anything now without stuff printed on it no matter where one shops.

Annaconda had promotion could swap Ur old stinky fishing shirt n they would give a new annaconda one for free......
..why people wear branded stuff...
Prob same reason people argue over shimano vs Daiwa ect
Plus average fish prob can't be bothered looking else where to find UV protection shirts

Let me also ask the question while im at it.

Do the people who are saying they will not wear branded clothing realise that they are infact fishing with a branded rod and reel, what about the hats? so does that not matter? you are still advertising their products arent you?

The shirts yes they do stand out on some models, in summer (or anytime its not cold for me) i wear them because they offer quite good UV protection and actually are very comfortable to wear.
if you don't want the fancy logos then buy a very simple design, or wear them inside out. or just don't buy them
